Chapman 48 #1 Menlo 65
Chapman's slowdown tactics worked pretty for the first half as the teams went into the break knotted at 28. Menlo's fastbreak eventually broke loose though in the second half and they racked up 37 points to pull away for the conference opening home victory. Menlo and dgravs stayed undefeated and atop the rankings with the win while Chapman and shine dropped into the others receiving votes section after the loss.

: St. Joseph's scored enough to get the cover against #19 S.Vermont 49-82
: Texas Lutheran was obviously inspired my continued ability to correctly spell their coach's name since they took a small lead early in the first half and maintained it the rest of the way to finish off a nice double-digit victory over Austin 78-68. As an experiment, next time they play I'll advertise it as rigowave31 vs aj1i1i1111ie and see if that has an effect on who wins.
